    Processed with HDR Efex Pro 2. Selected one in the list of auto possibilities made with a setting of 1EV.

    Luminosity masks are great, but you'll probably get ghosting where the waves have moved between exposures. I would use Capture One on the middle exposure to recover some of the shadow detail (assuming you have RAW files) then use the luminosity mask only on the sky to bring in burnt out highlights. That should give a natural looking result if that's to your taste.

    I already delete it. If you familiar with luminosity masking, shouldn't be complicated. Similar to this video.

    Just manual blending. Didn't touch the sky at all. Think it need to be replaced.

    This was done by using photomatix 6 Tone Balancer. I did copy the layer and use multiply blending mode to decrease the highlights.

    I used 2 of the 3 images...I eliminated the brightest one. I stacked them as layers and used blend if sliders to blend the brighter sky with the lower exposed sky. Then I opened that image in camera raw and did some fine tuning with contrast and color.

    Photoshop also has a HDR function (I've never it): File/Automate/Merge to HDR Pro.

    There's a video on it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCteSD9oYT0

    There are a lot of other articles/video's available via Google. I've never used HDR but for manual blending, I think Tulack's tip would be the way to go.What I'd add is: automatically align layers first and use layer curves & masks to fine-tune the luminosity blend.

    Use luminosity masks.

    started a topic Whats the best way blend these three Photos

    Whats the best way blend these three Photos

    Just wondering what would be the best way to deal with these three photos. One was taken at +2 stops exposure, the second at +0 and the third at -2. Let me know how you blended these or perhaps, just take one of these three and process it.

    Thanks
